The Vista Peewees outplayed the Cordova Jr. Lancers in every aspect of the game this weekend. The Eagles had solid performances from all four quarterbacks (Nico Biagetti, Trevor Kaestner, Matt Werpy and Brenden Miller) combining for 36 points. The Eagle offense benefited from a great line and solid blocking by outside receivers (Brayden Caylor, Carson Anglesey, Cade Greenmun, Hunter Brockly and Brayden Miller). The Eagle offense also saw break out rushing plays from running backs (Will Anderson, Jack Cromwell and Jasen Womack) as they sliced in and out of the Lancer defense. Guard Aschlei Andrade made several sweeping blocks providing room for the Eagle backs to work up field. Vista's defense continues to smother its opponents after posting its fourth straight shutout. The defensive line (Lorenzo Becerra, Tim Ten Brink, Lucas Garcia, Joseph Musk, and Samir Spikes) provided constant pressure. Brock Mendenhall and Biagetti each had their first touchdown of the season. Brenden Miller and Anthony Righini had break out games making several great plays.
The Jr. Midget Vista Jr. Eagles were presented with an unscheduled open week and made the most of it with an intra-squad scrimmage Saturday morning at Vista del Lago High School. The coaching staff was divided and led by the coordinators to pick teams in a snake draft format, while the head coach was put in the white hat as the head official. The Jr. Midget families all pulled on the rope to make this happen by volunteering to set up the field, assist with referee duties, and put together a tailgate style BBQ for the players following the Blue-White Jr. Midget match up. The game was filled with great effort and competition with most players playing offense and defense for two 15-minute halves. The Eagles will head into the second half of the season 4-0 next week on the road at Christian Brothers.
